As President Joe Biden’s approval ratings continue to tumble and gas prices keep rising, many are starting to think a “red wave” will roll across the country during next year’s midterm elections.
And if things don’t turn around soon for Democrats, that red wave might just keep rolling into 2024 and beyond. Many Republican leaders are already predicting major victories in the future.
This includes former Vice President Mike Pence, who has become more vocal in recent months.
He spoke at the Republican Jewish Coalition’s annual leadership meeting in Las Vegas, Nevada over the weekend, and Pence stood strong for his party.
He also said “President Joe Biden has turned his back on Israel.” Many GOP leaders and right-wing citizens haven’t been happy with the current administration’s stance on Israel and Jewish citizens.
Pence added that under Biden,, “America is a nation in crisis.”
Given the massive supply chain problems, ongoing border crisis, and rising concerns about the economy, that might not be an exaggeration. And Biden doesn’t appear to have many answers.
Trump’s former right-hand man also made one powerful statement during his speech (from Fox News):
Former Vice President Mike Pence this weekend vowed that ‘we’re going to win back this country in 2024.’
After Republican upstart Glenn Youngkin upset Democrat incumbent Terry McAuliffe in the Virginia gubernatorial election last week, the GOP has felt a surge of optimism.
There were other important “red wave” swings in other states as well, and most polls are indicating a dramatic shift away from Democrat policies.
And while Pence hasn’t said he plans to run for President in 2024 (a rumor that has circulated for much of 2021), it’s clear he wants to remain active and vocal for his country.
The conference in question also featured other high-profile Republicans, such as Sen. Ted Cruz (TX), who was runner-up in the 2016 Republican primary battle. He isn’t planning another run in 2024.
However, that doesn’t mean Cruz will be taking a step back:
We’ll see what President Trump decides to do, but I am going to fight to pull this country back from the abyss because this country’s worth fighting for.
Regardless of who runs in 2024, however, it seems clear the Republican Party is on the upswing.
In a recent NPR/PBS poll, 44 percent of Democrats and left-leaning independents want a nominee other than Biden for the 2024 race. Only 36 percent said they’d prefer to stick with him.
That certainly isn’t the only poll that shows a significant swing.
With the holidays right around the corner and major economic concerns floating around, Biden is in a tougher position than ever before. And previous crises haven’t been resolved, either.
So when Pence says, “we’re going to win back this country in 2024,” that might be a safe prediction at this point.
- Former VP Mike Pence said in a recent speech that “America is a nation in crisis.”
- But he also said the “red wave” is real, and the GOP will “win back this country in 2024.”
- He did not confirm that he’d run for President, and Sen. Ted Cruz denied a bid as well. But both cited major a big GOP upswing in the polls.
